Static IP Not Available and Dynamic IP Address Got You Down?
An internet-connected device (camera, DVR, NVR) can still be configured to be accessed from outside its local network by enabling DDNS service.
ISPs commonly provide a dynamic IP address to their users. The lack of a static IP address means the user must reconfigure their device connection settings every time a new IP address is allocated, and this breaks your connection to your camera. This further means that you won’t be able to access your camera stream anymore.
No need to worry anymore!!
Dynamic Domain Name System (DDNS) Service solves this problem! A fixed address is assigned by the DDNS service provider that can be used to connect to the desired device. The device itself must be configured with the DDNS credentials so that it may automatically update the service with the newly allocated IP address.
